Reviews She Was the Quiet One

  • Tammy
    Back to boarding school again complete with privileged, bratty teens and the good twin/bad twin trope. Lots of angst about fitting in and falling out combined with misunderstandings and murder. It’s not bad but it is too long with characters’ inner turmoil on sensory overload. I certainly could have done without the epilogue.
  • Mackenzie - Traveling Sister
    A dark and twisted book about the complexities of sisterhood and the scandals that can rock a small community! This is my first book I’ve read by Michele Campbell, though I have been wanting to read her first book, It’s Always the Husband, and I really loved it! I read a Q&A with Campbell where she talks about the inspiration behind her first book being her fascination with the concept of frenemies and what the implications are for that type ...
  • Carrie
    She Was the Quiet One is the second thrilling novel by Michele Campbell and having read It’s Always the Husband last year I was rather curious about this one. You see, I was completely torn with It’s Always the Husband in the fact that I just didn’t care for the characters and a few details here and there but found the writing absolutely compelling anyway. Needless to say that I wanted to know if this new story would match up with her writi...

    Twinsies+ scandalous unpredictable characters + murder + gossip + lies= addicting ride! This was my first book by Michelle Campbell and I have to say.. it won't be my last. There were many things I enjoyed about this novel. I loved the different POV perspectives in this one.... which is always a huge PLUS in my book :). Michelle does a fantastic job of leaving you wondering who, what, where, and why until the very end!I do have to say that... un...

  • Nikki
    3 starsMany thanks to Goodreads Giveaways and St. Martin’s Press for this ARC!Twin sisters + haughty boarding school + murder= A book full of characters oozing with petulance and malice. It’s like Mean Girls meets Cruel Intentions in this psychological thriller, full of immorality and wicked cliques. While I felt there was much to be desired in terms of shocks and twists, nonetheless, this book kept me reading and hanging in there until the v...
  • Jamie Rosenblit
    4.5! Michele Campbell's debut, It's Always the Husband was a book I very much enjoyed in 2017 and since this one was announced, I had been looking forward and am pleased to announce it did not disappoint. There is something about books set at boarding schools that immediately intrigues me, I'm not sure why, but usually this is a breeding ground for salacious drama (my favorite kind)! One other thing I love - TWINS! and twin drama! Read this book ...
  • Zoe Mann
    Do you ever finish reading a book and feel like you've just watched a movie? I can picture every single character and scene from "She Was the Quiet One" by Michele Campbell like it unfolded right before my eyes. Campbell had me hooked from the very beginning. A twisted story of 2 orphan twins who attend a new boarding school which results in one ending up dead and the other being accused of murder. "She Was the Quiet One" is worded so well yet so...

When Bel and Rose Enright are sent to The Odell School, a prestigious private school, after the death of their mother, they quickly begin to drift apart. Bel falls in with the “wrong crowd” and is soon pulling pranks and risking suspension while Rose is towing the line and following the rules, almost too compulsively. The ...

  • Giulia
    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the chance to read and review.This book was like the pot you need to boil so you can make your pasta. The more you sit there and wait for the water to boil the longer it seems to take to start percolating. I liked the story line but the characters did not draw me in. I think this book is geared to the YA circuit as it centers around a murder at an exclusive boarding school. I would recommend to an olde...

    via my blog:'Neither Sarah nor Heath had a counseling background. They knew nothing about running a dorm, or providing guidance to messed-up girls.

  • Enchantress debbicat ☮
    3.5 stars. A well done thriller at a girls boarding school. Bel and Rose are twins. They are sent off to boarding school by their grandmother. Early on they end up on different sides of "good and bad" associations. Bel is running with the bad girls and Rose is the perfectionist wanting to do everything right and run with the "good" people. What follows is a story of jealousy, rebellion, hazing, get even, girl fights, crush on teacher, and much mo...
  • Jannelies
    Thank you NetGalley for this book.My first Michele Campbell and I'm not disappointed. This story is fairly straight and you can see what is coming from miles away, but still an entertaining read. I liked the way the book started, a bit of a mystery, but the epilogue I could have done with0ut because for me, it was a bit too much.
  • Jennifer
    Loved it!!! I became a fan of the author after reading and loving "It's Always the Husband." Right from the start you know one twin is dead and the other is locked up in the infirmary for being the killer. Of course I was hooked from the start!!I was immediately drawn into the story and felt like I was actually at the school with Bel, Rose and the Donovans. The twins are sent to the boarding school by their grandma after the death of their mother...

    Twin sisters Rose and Bel Enright couldn't be more different. Rose is serious about her education, she's quiet and isn't as pretty as her sister. Bel is a wild child who runs with a bad crowd at their new school. The Odell School is a prestigious New Hampshire boarding school. This was their chance to start anew after leaving California but nothing's gotten better between the sisters. In fact, things have gotten much worse. Especially when one of...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK!I’ll admit, I wasn’t crazy about it at first. If you’ve read the Private series by Kate Brian you’ll have a touch of deja vu, but please keep reading!My favorite part of this book is you don’t know which twin is dead until the end 😍Michele does a fabulous job of giving us clues that make us think it’s Bel’s dead, then she makes us think Rose is dead. Michele also does a good job of giving the characters enough b...

    Full review also found here. As a note, an e-galley of this novel was sent to me via NetGalley by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not effect my opinions in any way.There was a moment when I hesitated in picking this up. She Was the Quiet One had such an intriguing premise, but I haven't had the best luck when it came to stories of fictional twins lately. Then, there's the spoiled-angsty-rich-teenagers-at-boarding-school ...
